    Six more policemen charged in Katrina killings

    U.S. prosecutors unsealed a 27-count indictment that charged three current officers and one former officer with the killing, and subsequent coverup, of James Brissette, a 17-year-old city resident, and Ronald Madison, a 40-year-old man who suffered disabilities and was shot in the back.
    About damm time! "To serve and protect" What a bull**** slogan.



    The officers were armed with two AK-47 assault rifles, a shotgun and a M-4-type assault rifle, among other weapons, during two incidents that occurred within minutes of each other on the Danziger Bridge a few days after Katrina hit the city.
    What the **** are cops doing with military grade hardware??!!! Especially since us lowly serfs have to go through a bull**** runaround to get a basic hand gun.

    What a sad story. It's a shame it took five years; but better late than never.

    If I understood the story, these policemen were responding to shots fired. It will be interesting to see the story unfold. It's hard to beieve it was cold-blooded murder. Those were extraordinary times.

    Would you want policemen to be less well armed than an average drug dealer? So six cops killed two citizens? I'll tell you, New Orleans has had one of the most corrupt police forces in the country for a long time.

    They generally did always did have a bad reputation. Chicago cops - not really corrupt but they'll kick your ass in a heartbeat.

    I was wondering why someone kept yelling, "Help us"!
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    If you give 100 men a gun and little oversight during a ****storm and eventually you will find an evil man willing to wait till noone is looking and murder JUST FOR FUNS SAKE. And if not 100 then a thousand. And if not 1k then eventually time will take care of it'll happen next time. Now if cops had polocies in place that protect the needful from the cops themselves it would be less bad. Like guns that took pictures as they shot (although subverted by collecting unregistered firearms from criminals) and helmet cams that must be worn (and if a security enforcer is caught or proven to have been 'on the job' without said helmet cam they lose all protections against prosecution.) Uhhh.. I don't really know the point of this ramble anymore. So ima just hit post.

    I doubt they were armed with actual AK-47's and M-4's. More likely, they had civilian knockoffs.
